Holistic Treatment for Leaky Gut Syndrome (Part 2)
By Dr. Juliet Tien
(Dr. J), D. N. Sc.
In the previous article, I
discussed the symptoms of leaky gut syndrome and its possible causes. To recap,
the leaky gut allows substances such as toxins, microbes, undigested foods,
waste, larger than normal macromolecules to leak through an abnormally
permeable gut wall.
Consequently, this will cause
your immune system to react. You may experience symptoms including bloating,
diarrhea, indigestion, unhealthy weight loss, sugar craving, genital yeast
infections, chronic fatigue, mind fog, and depression.
Possible causes of leaky gut
syndrome include yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habit,
psychological stress, and a liberal use of antibiotics and other potent drugs.
Luckily, leaky gut syndrome is reparable. In this article I will address the
holistic treatment for you to repair the leaking guts and regain health and
Herbal Therapy for Yeast and Parasitic Infections
To prevent the worsening of
leaky gut syndrome, the pathogenic yeasts and parasites need to be removed
simultaneously as soon as possible from your intestines. A strong herbal detox program is needed to perform this task quickly and
effectively. You also need herbal formulas that can repair the lining of your
digestive tract and allow healthy tissues to grow.
Anti-Yeast Nutritional Program
An anti-yeast nutritional program
contains no sugar, no dairy, no wheat, no yeasts, no alcohol, no caffeine, no
nicotine, nor chemicals. Even though this is a tall order for most Americans
who are used to Standard American Diet (SAD) loaded with the above no-no’s, you
need to do the best you can to follow these “Eight Commandments,” so that you
can nourish your body and starve the little enemies: yeasts and parasites in

Manage Your Stress Effectively
Most clients reported to me
that their leaky gut syndrome flared up when they were under stress. Stress is
part of life. When managed effectively, stress can propel you to the higher
level of success or spirituality. Many roads lead to Rome. Try different ways
to reduce your stress.
Daily prayers, meditation and
exercise are found to be very simple and effective ways for stress management.

daily, and you will enjoy newfound peace and harmony.
Use Antibiotics or Other Potent Drugs Very Cautiously
As explained in the previous
article, the western medical establishment uses antibiotics as a “catch-all”
magic bullet for all infections without consideration of strengthening the
immunity. Cortisone is another popularly used drug to inhibit the inflammation
process but destroys the immunity.
They may be effective in
inhibiting inflammations for a short period of time; however, in the long run,
they weaken your immunity, and thus allow yeast overgrowth. Remember, as I
stated repeatedly in previous articles, yeasts and parasites are “Siamese
Twins.” They go hand in hand. When yeasts overgrow in your body, so do
As I mentioned in the
previous article, when people developed leaky gut syndrome, they usually
encounter all the factors described above. However, if you employ a holistic
approach to healing your leaky guts, you will experience improvement. Be
patient with yourself, and with your life. Leaky gut syndrome is curable!
